    Background: Since September 2003, a Women's health Volunteer Group (WVG) has been established in two villages in Myanmar's central dry zone. The purpose of the group is to improve regional reproductive and child health, and training program has been given to women who fulfilled certain conditions. This human resources training program is divided into Phase I (foundation phase), Phase II (maintenance and continuation phase) and Phase III (independent phase) during the period from September 2003 to March 2008. The WVG is expected to become capable of conducting activities independently in four and a half years. Aim: To grasp the activities maintained and continued by the WVG in Phase II (September 2005-February 2006), in which the WVG received support from external parties, and to clarify the contents of support in Phase III. Method: We conducted focus group interviews with the WVG members who agreed to participate. Interviews were held twice in each of the nutrition centers in two villages, where the WVG is based. The interview details were written down at the time of the interviews, and among them, we analyzed the discourse on WVG activities in Program Phase II. Results: At village A, there were 6 participants at both the first and the second interview. At village B, there were 10 participants at the first interview, and 11 participants at the second interview. Through the interviews, it was clear that WVG activities have been continued, with their focus on first aid and the family planning revolving capital program. The activities of the WVG have been gradually permeating into the villages, and have been supported by the understanding of authority in the villages. Factors thought to be strengthening the activities are the pleasure of satisfying intellectual curiosity and empowerment derived from gratitude from the residents. Factors thought to be weakening activities are lack of confidence and lack of process for obtaining agreement within the Group. Towards Phase III, in which the WVG will aim for independent development of activities, external supporters should carefully evaluate each development stage of the WVG.

    Journal of St. Luke's Society of Nursing Research 10(1) 46-53 Jun. 2006
    The author Oguro was sent to the Union of Myanmar by AMDA, A non-governmental organization. Since October 2003, the author was engaged in a program on human resource development in Women's health Voluntary Groups (WVGs). The WVGs aim to improve regional maternal and child health in two villages. The aim of this report is to describe the process of the development of the capacity building program. The program looks at reproductive and child health, and the behavior changes in WVGs focusing on the period from September 2003 to November 2004, which is defined as phase I . The program will be slated to continue until March 2008. The author and others planned the program based on the primary baseline survey, and set the objectives and methods in 1.set up the group, 2.training, and 3.starting activity. After selection of the members, trust was developed between WVGs/community and implementers through meetings and workshops, and the WVGs'capacity was built through training. Each member of the WVGs is in charge of approximately 15 households and the program is slowly being accepted by the villagers through these activities. The following activities were conducted by the WVGs up to November 2004 : (1) Management of The Family Plan Revolving Fund Program, which gives women who cannot afford birth control an interest-free loan, (2) Encouraging pregnant women and mothers of infants to have a regular checkup and vaccination, (3) Giving basic first aid, (4) Joining the community clinic, (5) Conducting health education. As the result of the development of the program that respects the WVGs spontaneity and the regional characteristics, the WVG members have been encouraged to participate. It was found that it is important to focus on the process of how they form the local organization. It was also found that the WVGs have changed their behavior and have empowered each, through the interaction with the implementers.
